We love this movie,
This review is from: Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas (Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD)) (Blu-ray)
My friends and all LOVE this movie, despite all the scathing negative reviews from so-called "experts" here and on other movie sites who constantly trash it. Of course it's not 100% "true" to the original (20-minute) cartoon or the book. You gotta fill a 2-hr+ movie with something, so they came up with a lot more material and a back story... we all adore the mildly adult and sometimes twisted humor, anti-Christmas dialog, great effects, and some of the funniest lines I've ever heard in a movie. I generally hate Jim Carrey, but in this role, he truly cracks me up. I am ordering the Blu-Ray version to replace my regular DVD... It's a holiday staple at our house, and will continue to be forever.
For those who expected a charming, nostalgic full-length children's book movie version of this classic tale, I suggest you settle for the original cartoon... This takes the story to a new, (and funnier) level, and I for one, think it's great entertainment!

How was the quality of the blu ray? Was the AV good?

I like this movie too and want to get the Blu-ray at this great price but I really want to know if this has all the extras that the two-disc DVD version has?
